  • when did it happen
    i still can't recall it
    life wasn't enough
    until after i typed it

    tell me a secret
    i still won't believe it
    'til after you shot it
    'til you make it public

    and you said, elizabeth
    i am just phoning it in
    quite literally
    i lost the poetry
    texting without feeling
    a song without meaning
    a dog without a bone
    i'm talking without speaking
    together, alone
    together

    my brain is connected to my hand is connected to my phone
    one more photo of a wedding or a picture perfect home

    lying in bed
    late in the evening
    you're never alone even when you are sleeping
    my brain is connected to my hand is connected to my phone

    i fell in love with a boy on the screen
    he looked so real in my digital dream
    i heard the sound of a bluebird singing a song
    closed my eyes when i woke he was already gone
    flesh and blood when i look at the sun
    not just a fact, but a figure to become
    closed my eyes all the people were singing
    i once wrote a song to the sound of your heartbeat
    da dum dum da dum dum
    do you remember the feeling?
    da dum dum da dum dum
    of a true heart beat

    do you ever think that you're too young to be complaining 'bout your memory
    i've often wondered
    do you ever think that you're too young to be forgetting where to go
    i've often wondered

    does your potential make you feel bitter?
    throw your computer in the hudson river
    oh, my brain is connected to my hand is connected to my phone

    'cause no one stops anymore
    always ready for that next big thing
    no one rests anymore
    always searching for that new beginning

    so worried about what could be missing
    that we miss out on the life we're living
    and the kiss you're about to give me now
    and the kiss you're about to give me
    now, now, now, now

    i fell in love with a boy on the screen
    he looked so real in my digital dream
    i heard the sound of the bluebird singing a song
    closed my eyes when i woke he was already gone
    flesh and blood when i look at the sun
    not just a fact, but a figure to become
    closed my eyes all the people were singing
    i once wrote a song to the sound of your heartbeat
    la da da da da da da
    the sound of your heartbeat
    la da da da da da
    the sound of your heartbeat

    too tired to speak
    to bored to go home
    too apathetic to listen
    too brash to be bold
    i think i'm just phoning it in
    and i don't even know it
    let's all yawn in unison
    together, alone Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
